Students huddle in a tent at Mary C. Snow West Side Elementary on Thursday. The school had a camping-themed writing workshop this week, to prep students for the writing portion of their state standardized test next week.
The cafeteria at Mary C. Snow was decked out in a camping theme. Many of the students at the West Side school had never been in a tent before.
Angela Silverstein, a 4th grade teacher at Mary C. Snow, teaches DaShaunna Pope, 10, how to cast a fishing line. The exercise was part of an activity on adjectives and other words that provide details.
